My Dream Has Come True--GHOST RIDER SEQUEL!

The worst, and therefore, best, movie of all-time is somehow getting a sequel. My prayers have been answered.
Apparently, the guy who is doing it is one of the writers for Batman Begins. I was hoping Ghost Rider didn't get legitimate... And then I realized Nick Cage is still in it, so I'm safe there.

...And before I forget (Jim Henson)

Jim Henson's birthday is tomorrow.
One of my favorite people in the entire universe. Jim Henson, apart from being an inventor, comedian, musician (kindof), puppeteer, moviemaker, director, and all-around genius, was a really great guy. The creator of Sesame Street, the Muppets, Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, Fraggle Rock, and other such gems of our youth, he will be sorely missed by everyone who loves his work and who appreciates greatness.

"I believe that we form our own lives, that we create our own reality, and that everything works out for the best. I know I drive some people crazy with what seems to be ridiculous optimism, but it has always worked out for me." -Jim Henson

Somehow I missed Elvira, Mistress of the Dark's birthday

9/17 was the birthday of my beloved Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. One of the funniest, most beautiful, awesomest people in entertainment, I will always have a profound innermost adoration for Elvira. Happy belated, Elvira!

All Tomorrow's Parties by Beck's Record Club

Not sure if people know about this, but if you do, just skim. Beck has gathered a group of musicians to cover whole albums, and they have just released The Velvet Underground and Nico. It's not bad--I like "Run, Run, Run" more than the original--but what's great about it is the singer on this one, Thorunn Magnusdottir. The only thing I found about her was that she was in this pretty terrible band called The Honeymoon. She has a MySpace, but, unfortunately, Flash requires a newer OS than I have, so no MySpace music for me... Anyhoo, I recommend you watch the video and listen to the other two worthwhile songs on the covers album ("RRR" and "I'll Be Your Mirror"). What do you think?

Well, look at that! Captain EO is returning to Disney!

Yep, you heard right! Captain EO, the Michael Jackson 3-D adventure is coming back to Disneyland in California in 2010. I've been talking about this for years and what a good idea it was. I hope that they decide to put it back in Epcot Center at Disney World, so I can go visit soon(ish).

Ghanan Film Posters

Look at these Ghanan takes on film posters. Pretty cool, if you ask me.

Pug Hug

My new favorite picture ever.

Wait, no...that can't be. Brussels castle.

This is a ceiling of a castle in Brussels. Guess what it's made of. IT'S CRAZY!
Go there, too.

8/30 John Peel's Bday

John Peel, the most influential DJ of the Britons and totally coooool cat (famous for creating the career of the Undertones and bringing punk rock to BBC's airwaves), would have celebrated his birthday on the 30th. Happy birthday, John!

Unsuccessful Wax Celebrities

This website shows a bunch of pictures of slightly imperfect wax clones of celebrities. Love it.
